Some forthcoming engagements are listed below...

8-12 JUNE 2022

Lee Abbey, North Devon


I shall be exploring some of the features of the early Celtic Church, especially as it developed in Ireland from where it spread across the world with wonderful evangelistic and pastoral vigour. Come and join us in the beautiful setting of Lee Abbey.

Pilgrimages:  Each year I lead Pilgrimages with Russ Parker

Pilgrimages this year are to Scotland, Ireland and Assisi in Italy. In 2023 we are planning a pilgrimage in Cornwall and possibly Wales. All visits are to sites connected to our Celtic Christian history (or Francis and Clare in Assisi). For more information email me at michaelmitton@btinternet.com 

some feedback from a recent retreat...


Michael is a delightful and engaging speaker - he is one of those individuals who leaves an imprint on your mind and his sense of calm and kindness is something I have remembered on a number of occasions this week and tried to invoke while teaching turbulent secondary school pupils! 


Michael is an excellent speaker and I really valued his creative and imaginative approach.


I  found Michael’s beautiful presentations really helpful.  I liked the way he made such good use of visual images, video clips, poetry and stories from the lives of the saints.
